The First Revelation to Prophet Muhammad (sa) was: “Read by the name of your Lord” (96:1). This means the first word of Revelation was “Read”. This shows the importance Islam attach to knowledge and education.
But unfortunately today the Wahhabi contamination of Sunni Islam have produced murderous terrorists who attacked Universities and schools killing students and their teachers and chanting “Allahu Akbar”!
Today Muslims are the most backward nations among all communities, in Nigeria more than 80% of children out of school are Muslims from Northern Nigeria. And more than 50% of children out of school in the world are Muslims from Northern Nigeria.
Yet we have bloodthirsty savages who kill people for going to schools. They want darkness and ignorance to continue as knowledge is light and progress.
